Every bride wants to wear a wedding gown that's one-of-a-kind -- stunning yet timeless, exquisitely handcrafted, and with its own story to tell.

Actress Evelyn Sharma did exactly that when she married Brisbane-based dental surgeon Tushaan Bhindi at the Rubern Lodge in Chinchilla, which has an elegant country-side feel to it.

According to their wedding photographer Louise Wilson, 'the French country styling and Evelyn's handcrafted vintage lace gown, together set the scene for the perfect, intimate wedding.'

Evelyn made for an elegant bride in her lace Moondance wedding gown from Sydney-based bridal label Lost In Paris.

The gown was ethically made in Sydney from rare vintage, two-tone Quaker lace unearthed in USA.

It includes a nude-coloured silk slip to wear underneath and costs around Australian $2,300 (about Rs 129,736). It is currently out of stock.

Looking lovely in the gown, which featured a high-waist, A-line skirt and half-sleeves, Evelyn completed the look with intricate tear-drop earrings and a lovely bouquet of fresh flowers.

Known for their beautiful wedding gowns, Lost In Paris is more about the lace that's sourced from antique markets in Europe. 

The passionate team of dressmakers painstakingly restore and refashion the lace into one-of-a-kind wedding dresses at their Sydney atelier.

'The antithesis of mass-produced, mainstream bridal gowns, all of our dresses are ethically made with respect for people and planet.

'There are no sweatshops or other dirty little secrets hidden behind our collection,' the Lost In Paris Website states.

Given that Evelyn is an ethical fashion advocate -- she runs the NGO Seams for Dreams, which is into donation of clothes for charity -- it comes as no surprise that she chose a made-to-measure gown that's laced in history.

Sharing pics of their wedding, she introduced Tushaan to her followers on Instagram.

'My prince charming,' she wrote sharing the wedding pics. 'I'm the happiest when I see your open arms waiting for me.'
